"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." -J.R.R. Tolkien

We tremble before the darkness
We fear silence
And we smile at the light
We love the sound


Yet it is in the silence
That our voices may be heard
In the darkness that we may be free
To act without others looking


We beg for the truth
We shun those who live in darkness
But take away a man’s mask
Let him see the light and hear the sound

Let people see and hear that it is he

And suddenly he shall hold back his actions
For fear of what people may
Think or say of him


Hiding in the darkness
We can do what we want
Without judgment or scorn
Be free and heard in silence


Give me a mask or place in darkness
And I shall dance for the world
But place me in the light
I shall stand still and rigid


Give me silence of the world
And I shall shout my ideas
But place me in the sound, the noise
My voice will be drowned.
